HP switch connected 2 switches

Hi Experts,

I want to implement a new cisco switch to our environment.
On site I have two HP switches connected.
One HP 24 port switch is connected over the fiber uplink with another HP 48 port switch.
The trunk or tagged port is 23.

The new Cisco switch is also a 48 port switch (2960S-TS-S)
This new switch is conncted over the second fiber uplink from the HP 24 port switch.
But when I set port 21 to tagged on the new CISCO switch nothing works anymore.
I thought it must be a trunk, because I have vlans on all switches.

Can you explain why its not working with a trunk ?

Please post the config of the cisco switch port that connects to the HP.
Also post the VLAN configs of the HP switch.

I would start with these videos on trunking between a Cisco and HP switch (simply explained):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dm0qlyrv2hE

If the explanation does not become apparent via these, then a posting of the configuration of both switches will be needed as previously mentioned by Don.

I had the problem with the native vlan.
On the cisco the native vlan is 1.
On the other site on the second uplink, when I configure this link to tagged, then nothing works on the Cisco in vlan 1.
So I excluded the vlan1 on the HP from the tagged port.

how to convert this command from a vlan on my HP :

IP IGMP

This needs to go to my cisco config.

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
If the native VLAN on the Cisco side is VLAN1 then the native VLAN on the HP side has to be VLAN 1.

VLAN 1
 untagged xx ! where xx is the port number

igmp snooping is enabled by default on Cisco switches, but you can enable with the "ip igmp snooping" command.

ok thanks.

on the same switch I have a problem with a vlan.
This vlan10 has no ip address.
It has 4 ports.
On port 39 a dsl modem is connected.
On port 40 a windows client is connected and should get an ip address from the modem.

But when I connect the modem to port 39, the LEDs turn to orange and no ip address can be received.

Do you know why ?

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
Would need to see the config of the switch to be able to determine the problem.

Does VLAN 10 exist?  Use the "show vlan brief" command.

As I understand, you want to connect a Cisco 2960 to an HP switch.  Is this correct?  What port on the Cisco is connected to which port on the HP?

Please post the current configs of both switches.

The move from HP to CISCO is done.
Thanks for all the answers.
